Porter County Incumbent Sheriff David Lain has entered the 2010 primary election race this morning in honor of his mother’s 86th birthday.

Lain will be taking on W. “Chip” Yanta in the Democrat May 4 primary. Yanta filed last week.

Lain said he was looking forward to staying in public service and complimented his staff. “It’s an honor to be placed in this position,” he said.

In other filings this week, Portage Township Assessor Maureen “Mae” Wendrickx, a Democrat, filed for Porter County Assessor.

The filing deadline is at noon Feb. 19 for the May primary.

The following is the up-to-date list, as of this morning, of the candidates who filed either in the Voter Registration Office for county and township races or with the Indiana Secretary of State for federal or state offices.
